Week 9 – Recovery is a Choice

“I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy!”   I am, I am, I am!!!

When I came to MKE Week 9, I had a niggling feeling of something that just did not set well with me.  I ignored it, prioritized something else, or became really busy and forgot about it, but it remained.

As I embraced each new exercise, refined my DMP, steadfastly and stubbornly claimed my new blueprint, that niggling continued.   What is it?  Why is it?

So here it is.  The beginning of recovery is to ADMIT I have a problem.  This ‘thing’ is from my old blueprint.  The closer I got to parts of my DMP, the more it attempted to take over.

My name is Louise.  I am in recovery and gaining victory from R.I.S.(Red Ink Syndrome)!   Its a start.

Law of Substitution:   We cannot think about 2 things at the same time.  If a negative thought enters your mind ~ try to think about God instead.  If that is too big a reach at the time, use any fond memory or other pleasant thought.  Jesus, the Master Teacher, said, “Resist not evil” ~ meaning turn from it and think about something else instead.

Admitting is a beginning, but I needed to choose to do something about it.  And that is where my gratitude kicks in, big time.  This R.I.S., is completely curable.  Oh sure, it can be masked using whiteout or keeping a lid on your imagination.

I HAVE TOOLS to deal with this, constantly.  My tools are masterfully crafted and assembled.  These tools are at my finger tips.  All I need to do is CHOOSE to utilize them.  The cost?  Wholeness, Perfection, Strength, Power, Love, Harmony, and Happiness.  I am so grateful!!!

My R.I.S. didn’t just happen.  I have had it for decades – and I didn’t even know it!!!  I am grateful for the diagnosis, but I am more grateful for the tools to combat it.

I GET to choose to utilize my tools.  I GET to concentrate on my new friend, my authentic self.  I GET to fill my mind with beautiful bright shapes, with thought provoking words that cause my heart to soar, with familiar truths put in the correct perspective, and with the truth that the only way to get love is by giving it, that the more you give the more you will get, and the only way in which you can give it, is to fill yourself with it, until you become a magnet.  (Haanel 9:16)

Niggling feeling, I know what you are.  Niggling feeling, you are being crowded out by, I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy.  Niggling feeling, we are done!

I am a grateful, recovering, R.I.S.er.

Happy Season of Gratitude!!!

Great press release too! (I didn’t see a place to like or comment on that.) Really enjoyed reading the press release which says so much about you and the MKE and its effect on your life and the world! Nice work!

The R.I.S. has been prevalent in my life too – and it sneakily creeps up every now and then. It;s usually the loud, obnoxious voice, not the quiet inner one. Thanks for sharing

    How well I understand!!! Thank you!

Self diagnosis – brilliant. ADORE RIS – quite appropriate. Interesting that you are redoing your DMP on this go around – do you do this each year (I fully realize we will always be revamping it, but writing one anew)? Finally – your RIS crept into your week 5 artwork (seeing this for the first time just above me typing my comment to you!).
